Have you joined the growing number of companies that offer VTO—Volunteering Time Off? 60% of companies offer employees paid time off for volunteering, and another 21% of companies plan to implement a program by 2024. What’s all the hubbub about? The basic premise is simple: You compensate employees at their regular rate for volunteering during work hours for a worthy cause in their community. Some companies offer up to 60 paid hours per year, but most start smaller—with as few as 8 hours per year. VTO is easy to administer and well worth the investment. It’s a win-win-win proposition—for the organization receiving the volunteer assistance, for the employees who are rewarded for helping others, and for the company overall.
